Business Expense Calculator

Considering starting a business? You might be wondering how much cash you need to get up and running. Without adequate capital, you could face a cash crunch and spend valuable time and energy taking care of cash flows instead of building your business. Use our business expense calculator to get an idea of how much start-up money you need to cover ongoing expenses for the first few months of business. A good rule of thumb is to budget for at least three months of ongoing expenses.
